meeting of senators john mccain and president obama. this was held at belmont university in tennessee. the questions came from undecided voters from the nashville area. tom brokaw was allowed to include questions submitted on- line. this is almost two hours. >> good evening from belmont university in nashville, tennessee. i'm tom brokaw of nbc news. and welcome to this second presidential debate, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's debate is the only one with a townhall format. the gallup organization chose 80 uncommitted voters from the nashville area to be here with us tonight. and earlier today, each of them gave me a copy of their question for the candidates. from all of these questions -- and from tens of thousands submitted online -- i have selected a long list of excellent questions on domestic and foreign policy. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen the questions. and although we won't be able to get to all of them tonight, we should have a wide-ranging discussion one month before the election. each candidate will have two minutes to r

, that was dishonest. >> when senator obama said in 2008, i'm going to cut the deficit in half, close gitmo, people said that was unrealistic, but didn't say he wasn't telling the truth. there's a difference, isn't there? >> no. closing gitmo involved an act of congress, and he wasn't able to get congress to agree with him on that question. this is basic math. >> greta: joining us our political panel, abc news senior washington editor rick klein, casey huntington, and byron york. rick, first you. i thought it was executive order to close gitmo, just needed congress to place the people. am i right? >> they realized it was going to be harder than they wanted. the distinction he's making is in terms of campaign pledges versus actions that you can possibly have congress do later. it's a stretch obviously. one man's lie and dishonesty. >> greta: it's name-calling. >> you've seen a shift from the obama campaign in terms of how they're trying to discuss and describe mitt romney. for a long time they were more interested in trying to describe him as a conservative extremist. they didn't want to go after hi

the white house will get the senate. that is today we would say that they were his president obama and today you say democrats are likely to keep the senate. if governor romney, it's a very narrow path when you look state-by-state. if governor romney wins the presidency that will mean there is a wave behind him, that there is some lift to him and that will bring in a couple of the senate candidates enough to put them over. >> chris? >> well just so you understand charlie cook has forgot more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible and one of the reasons people beforehand, a year ago, six months ago thought that the republicans weren't so sure as he pointed out 2006 was the way the election and democrats won in a lot of places like montana that you would expect them to win so as they went in and correct me if i'm wrong, visit democrats were defending 23 seats in the republicans only 10. just by the nature of the mathematics it seems likely the republicans would pick up seats in the democrats would look 23-10 but right now the conventional wisdom in the charlie cook wisdom is

of senator rob portman republican of ohio who was brought in to play the role of obama but have become a much broader advisor and we talked about how we have heard about how romney felt lonely on the trail. portman fulfilled that and he is now become a big advisor on messaging and we saw that whole package coming together in the debate. >> is there any regret by romney that he didn't pick portman as is a vice president and his fight in in a help or hindrance? >> why don't you ask us in 12 hours? [laughter] >> why did romney pick ryan. it wasn't somebody that he thought -- many people thought he would pit. >> it was someone that no one -- the only person at the top of the romney urbanization that wanted to pick paul ryan was mitt romney. and he picked paul ryan for a simple reason, the same reason that he and the olympics won a lot of advisers told him he shouldn't and that is because he wanted to. he is the ceo of the campaign and he is his own karl rove and that has caused them a lot of problems. he is the product, not the ceo but that is how he set it up. they feel good about the ryan choic

in pennsylvania, by a polling firm i trust, john mclaughlin that shows that romney is defeating obama in pennsylvania by 49-forty46. smith's running very close to casey for the senate. ryan needs to keep that momentum up approximate this election could be over. i think the big thing is the contrast between the politician and a policy person. a young person and an old person. i think on both scores, ryan will really help romney. we have to realize how much of obama's appeal is generational. when you you are putting on a v.p. debate with a 25 or 25-year, i guess, difference in age, and one who is kind of a haggard regular old-time bomb baftic politician, and the other, a very incisive, sharp, focused policy person, i think that you really are going to see ryan have a tremendous edge. the other thing is that ryan wrote the romney program. this is not just a candidate for v.p., his the intellectual leader of the republican party today. for him to be up there debating in a political debate is like, you know, it's like mickey mantle coming to bat because he -- he wrote all of these programs

senator portman watching in a hotel suite tonight. president obama was in the air on air force one for part of this tonight. how does this change prep for tuesday? >> well, i think we'll see certainly a more aggressive president obama. i think the interesting thing about it, we all kind of agree that this was probably a draw, which just draws attention to the fact of how rare it was last week when you had such a lopsided victory that everyone saw almost immediately and the president himself had to finally acknowledge. and then the question is if you have a draw, then who really wins ultimately? and you could say the republicans do because they're the ones who came in with momentum. but vice president biden was out there to stir up the base, to fire up the base. and if that was his objective tonight, he probably accomplished that. >> and tom brokaw, one of the elephants in the room, of course, is the business of moderating. a lot of talk about the job jim lehrer did. i think it will be mutually agreed that martha raddatz did a good job tonight and moved that conversation along. >> s

we want to talk about who abandoned whom? the obama administration had two years of republican house and senate and they did not introduce the same reforms that had been introduced before. >> this is all politics. we are not the world police. we are not supposed to be the world police. you go back to george washington and he was saying, to not be the world police. what i want to know from the congressman is, will he admit he got hoodwinked on iraq? the government sold us a bill of goods about weapons of mass destruction for a country that has the gdp of a small city that was no threat there. it was no threat made or no ability to harm the united states, but here we are nine years into a war in iraq for 4,500 servicemen dead. he got faked out on that one. that is something we should not have been involved in. i wonder if the congressman would admit he was wrong? >> hindsight is 20/20. you had virtually the entire congress move along with the resolution to go to war. >> there is something happening in iran with nuclear weapons that is getting a lot of attention. how can we handle the t

the energy that president obama was missing last week. republicans i'm talking to here in this spin room contend he was unhinged. i just heard senator ron johnson of wisconsin describe him as incredibly rude. but there is no question that in that exchange that you just played and others, congressman ryan may have started out making good points, but he often didn't get to the end of them because vice president biden interrupted him. >> pelley: jan crawford is covering the romney campaign for us. and she's there in kentucky as well. jan. >> reporter: well, scott, one thing that i think is so interesting about this debate tonight was that paul ryan was considered this man of substance. he was the numbers guy, the policy whiz, someone who could take out these powerpoint presentations and deliver them for an hour before voters in some small town in wisconsin and instead this was very much a debate that is going to be discussed on issues of style and that clip you showed really demonstrates that. those are substantive issues. they were trying to discuss. and look at biden interrupting paul rya

know, he called obama rational a few nights ago. to univision, president barack obama in a spanish language interview said, we do not see anything that venezuela is doing against the u.s. national interest. that goes against what republicans, including senator marco rubio, has said clearly and loudly. venezuela supports syria. venezuela supports iran. they could, in fact, be supporting hezbollah here in the country, although there isn't any concrete proof of that. those people, the republicans are saying, look, pay attention to venezuela. we need to understand what they're doing in this hemisph e hemisphere. >> paula newton, thanks very much. >>> a notorious self-confessed killer reportedly about to become a father behind bars. we have details on that and a lot more news coming up here in "the situation room." in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria an

obama. paul ryan is a genuine american who appreciates the work done by any member of the official government, whether it's the president or whether it's a member of congress, u.s. senate. there's a great amount of respect there. and i don't thichink that's goi to be the case. obviously the vice president has had his gaffes that he has had in speeches along the way and is known for that. he is also known to be a very competent debater, a deep thinker, i believe. i think he'll prepare really well for tonight's debate. it's going to be an interesting evening to watch. if either of those candidates make it about them, i think they're making a mistake. this is about governor romney and president obama and i think they're both going to be focused on that. >> interesting point, i think. a lot people think that the v.p. debate is not all that important in these discussions. nice to see you, sir. thanks for talking with us. >> soledad, thank you very much. but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, w
